ome Sweet Home, a mistranslation of Rome Sweet Rome, originally by Caesar.

He would say it after a long day of travelling at sea, being captured by pirates, be held for ransom, laugh at the suggested amount of 20 talents of silver, and tell the pirates they could easily get 50, which they would do, and be released, and proceed to raise a fleet, hunt down and crucify said pirates that captured him in the first place – as he promised while detained, but that the pirates had probably brushed off as a joke, however being a lenient man, having their throats cut first.. Which he loved just as much as the next guy.

A lot can be said about Caesar, but he was a man of his word, a gentleman, and off the figurative Cardea. (She was the roman goddess of hinges.)

You’d be surprised at the amount of truth this post actually contains.

Also, read this book Badass: A Relentless Onslaught of the Toughest Warlords, Vikings, Samurai, Pirates, Gunfighters, and Military Commanders to Ever Live it’s a collection of knowledge and history served with enough profanity to keep even me reading. – I has 8 one-star reviews that complain about the sex, drugs and rock-and-roll, and 94 five-star reviews that revere the book for serving history in a f#*%ing awesome way.
